Unhappy Mishimoto radiator, transmission fitting???

Got the new mishimoto radiator install, went to hook up the transmission lines and the fittings on the new radiator are different than what's on the factory radiator, trans oil cooler. The trans line went right in but the o-rings are squeezing out of one of drivers side connection. Can the o-rings be left off since these coolers are welded in place. Help me out please, working my but off to my beast back up and going.

Thanks,

Paul

Last I knew nothing was needed. Thought it should be a direct swap with nothing needed

It is a direct swap, just don't like the orings squeezing out. The mishimoto radiator fittings aren't chamfered for the the orings and there web site said to put Teflon tape on the treads. So should be good to go. Will take them back off and Teflon the fittings. Since the cooler is welded into the radiator and not a separate piece like it is in the stock radiator should be ok with out the orings.

Hey guys,

For installation please remove the factory o-rings and use Teflon tape on the threads of the transmission fittings. This will ensure a proper, leak free seal.

Additionally we are revising this radiator design to be more user friendly and provide improved fitment for all transmission fittings.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks

The orings are still there, but I did put Teflon on the threads, no leaks at this time and all is good. Hate to touch it just to remove the orings, my luck it would start leaking and not stop

Unfortunately the revised product is not yet available. We do not currently have a timeline for the release but it will likely be a few months. The existing radiator still functions correctly, we just recognized a minor flaw and are working to mend the issue.

This radiator is currently only available in a polished aluminum finish. We have been receiving a substantial number of requests lately for black radiators. Thanks for the recommendation, we certainly take customer feedback seriously. I will check with our team and see if this is something we want to bring into our lineup.
